Hallo Vir Turizam, Optcina Erik Lammens
Platform on Vir
As promised I send you my idea of a multifunctional platform for persons with a mobility problem of all kind. If we could realise something like this, Croatian style, then you’ll have an unicum and usefull example that you can show the world!
Let me explain the plan.
The purpose is, as you know, to give persons with mobility problems better acces tot the healing Adriatic Mora. With this structure we can solfe the situation in an effecient way.
An accessible platform on the beach and in the Mora, also provided with a lift system to lift persons into the water to swim, but more likely to lay persons on
a airmatrasse or a small rubber boat to float on the water and relax.
I did some investigation about what would be the best excisting, secured liftsystem. To use on a statief near the sea, on the beach and even in a toilet.
The company Handi Move from Belgium, specialised in lifting people, has in my opinion a verry good and multifunctional solution to use .
The compact portable electric liftmotor with remote control.
This strong liftmotor on batteries is usable for different lift purposes, because you can hook it on everywhere where a lift can be needed. To lift someone in the ocean or lake from a fixed statief, but also in a relaxchair on the beach and even on a toilet. For that you only need to install 1 meter of special rail in the ceiling of the toilet to hook in the liftmotor.
On this motor you can hang a soft sling to lift (middle down) or an inox carry arm
to lift people directly and with comfort out of their wheelchair to for example a relaxchair or airmatrasse. I use the inox carrier every day, its verry comfortable. That soft sling carrier can be used for people with amputation, there are lots of differents in it, in the PDF I send you also find that back. I suggest to have both solutions available.
It is verry efficient that you can lift people on different places with only one motor. Because it’s underestimeted how much lifting can be involved to create a full comfort zone for everybody. To have a perfect zone for people with worst case degree of paralysation like me you need a lift to put people into the sea, but if they like to sunbade on a relax chair another lifting is naissecery. Not to mention someone needs to go to the big toilet…
With one motor like this you can create multiple adapted zones in one airea.
The Offerte in PDF includes; -Liftmotor, Inox carrier for motor, Charger, Inox person carrier, soft sling to lift persons and 2 meters of special rail. All you need for 6250 euro inclusif tax!
A toilet on Riva big enough to drive in with a wheelchair would be verry welcome to.
I know people who do not come to the concerts because there is no accessible toilet available.
If you construct a toilet house, provide a strong concrete ceiling to connect a special rail to hook on the liftmotor and you have the best adapted toilet there is possible.
How to give people who needs this extra support acces to the liftmotor and some help is something to figure out. I can learn everybody to work with the lift, jobstudents, konobars, special ergo therapeuts… Maybe put a text sms nummer on a sign to call someone for help?
Lots of possibilities to think about.
A pivotating or fixed statief with rail.
You can construct and install a pivotating statief on the platform where we can hook on the liftmotor. The arm needs to swing out to the sea, and has the possibility to fold together.
Or you can construct a fixed statief with a rail system to move the liftmotor to the sea.
The special rail is deliverd by Handi move and 2 meters are included in offerte PDF.
The construction of those statiefs and platforms and the permits to place them will be the hardest part of the project. I have ideas and there are solutions for both constructions, but we need to sit together with a construction man on Vir for that.
I hope I could give you an idea of what’s need to be done to realise something special.
